Jan 30, 2014 8:00am PST
quote obama. >> i would say 15 judges in the fisa court, to judges, one in california and one in new york, have looked at this question and a determination that the 215 program is in fact constitutional. one judge and washington, d.c. has decided it is not. i think it only deals with half of the question. i believe they are correct that it is constitutional, it is inappropriate use -- it is an appropriate use. what the president has posed to us, just because we can do something, should we do it? >> a terror suspect facing trial

over. >> may it please the court, this case is fundamentally different from king because california's law applies to people who are never charged with an offense d those who are discharged from lack of probable cause. there is nothing that can justify taking d.n.a. from these individuals who are not being prosecuted. king is tracking people as they go through the criminal justice system up through trial. >> counsel, i respect the sincerity of your view but the reality is the supreme court said in king that d.n.a. was like fingerprinting. if all of the things that you say about your particular clients are true, they would still nonetheless be fingerprinted and their finger prints retained in a national data base just like the d.n.a. how do you distinguish that? the court made it very clear several times that d.n.a. and same, rints are of the constitutionally one is a more modern technology. >> that is not how i read the case. .n.a. is different from finger prints. d.n.a. is our genetic blueprint. finker prints have a history of being used to identify people, they do an excellent job

the limited identifiers, the junk d.n.a. aspect, that would be a distinction from california because california processes it right away. >> not right away. >> in other words, they don't wait for a charge. >> correct, and that is the fundamental distinction. >> may i ask you about that distinction though? and this may be because the supreme court wasn't clairvoyant in look at the situation we have in front of us. but if you go to the end of the opinion of the court, actually the court on page 23 of its slip opinion, it keeps talking about in sum there is little reason to question a legitimate reason of the government when it's talking about "the identity of the person arrested" and it talks about identification of arrestees. what do we make of that language as you fold it into the california statute? >> well, the first time the court talks about the identification of arrestees, it's from florence or hibble where it says in every criminal case it's necessary to know who has been arrested and who is being tried. when we talk about identifying arrestees, it's arrestees who are being pros

and florida, that are creating jobs, that are putting the infrastructure in, certainly in california they could come up with a better plan. they could go along the i-5 corridor, they could use existing rail corridor that has been abandoned. there are other opportunities if they truly want to cut costs. but if they don't want to change don't want to revise their budget and they have no private investor, the question still remains, what obligation do you have to go back to the california taxpayer? you're obligating the california taxpayer for nearly $10 billion and you are not fulfilling the prop 1-a guarantee that they voted on. so at a certain point, i believe that we have to force the california high speed rail authority to go back to the voters and seek approval. change your plan, go back to the voters and let the voters decide. mr. lamalfa: indeed. in 2012 there was legislation at the time in california to place that back in front of the voters. give people the option now that they have more information, to say do they really want to go through this, with california's other issues

the fundamental distinction here is california is taking d.n.a. from people who are never charged with a crime or discharged for lack of probable cause. >> he says it doesn't matter if they are ever arrested. he says if you are arrested rightly or wrongly and for whatever reason. so i would respectfully suggest i don't see how you can justify your point. i get your point about what is done with it afterwards, but i don't about the seriousness of the offense or anything of that nature because justice scalia makes it very clear about what the majority meant and it's not what you mean. >> could you clarify one thing? >> yes. >> in king, i understood the situation to be that they could only collect the sample after the individual had been charged as opposed to simply just rrested, is that right? that's an ambiguity in king. king repeatedly says that. that's the question presented, people arrested and charged. >> but if you go to the regulations that the state's attorney general issued in king, filing a charge, like a ticket or complaint, you seem to draw a distinction, as i understand
